This years Mascot and no new lay out?
« on: November 18, 2011, 10:30:35 pm »
So I always miss the cerimonies so my first chance to see the new mascot is always online usually when the site changes, and I understand it takes plenty of time to get a new site layout up but I'm generally surprised I dont see a new site layout with the new mascot and it's almost december, so just a bit curios if the staff decided not to get a new mascot this year or something?

Got a new mascot.

Probably changing the site fairly soon I'd imagine.

I think they put the new mascot out in 2012 right after the new year

^ That's usually correct.  I think the latest I've seen it was a little before Valentine's Day, but that was because they were having some sort of problems, as I recall.

It was never anywhere near that late.

The new mascot was announced in a front page news post on the last day of the con.

The 2012 website is being designed as we speak and will be up soon. Several pieces are involved that all need to be finished.

Woohoo! Then maybe we can have a "What gender is the mascot?" contest? ;)
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

I could have sworn that one change didn't even happen until late January-late February, like '08, or so.

I coulda sworn it was a boy, but people have pointed to to me that they think boobage is hidden by the arm.  The overall body, though, hips and proportions look male to me.  But, does our mascot really need to be tied down to gender?

I think the main mascot is tough to tell, though I'd lean more towards female.  The chibi version looks to me like it's clearly a female.

I do think it matters to know for sure, mainly because many people have been wondering and it will make things easier for anyone who wants to cosplay her (or him if I'm wrong) at the con.

oyos

lol... i'm surprised that this is actually such a dilemma. i'm actually suarhnir (kiichain was the online handle i used before switching to suarhnir, but i never bothered to change it on this forum yet).

to answer the great mystery: it's a girl. though if it makes a difference, she's very much a tom-boy...
